Service Learning Activities

Students Support the Eloise Gannon Foundation

At last Wednesday’s Community Focus Day, the Social Justice Group campaigned to raise money for the Eloise Gannon Foundation. The Foundation was founded to honour the memory of Eloise Gannon who unexpectedly died at the age of 15 due to a cardiac arrhythmia Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome (WPW). The Foundation raises awareness and introduces initiatives to reduce the incidence of sudden cardiac death (SCD) in youth. 

Students raised $350 through a bake sale and wrist bands. Thank you to Year 11 students who assisted to run the stall.

Students Fundraise for the Cambodia Service Learning Tour

At last Wednesday’s Community Focus Day, students also raised money to support the Cambodia Service Learning Tour, selling soft drinks to fund the purchase of building materials. Congratulations to our students, who have almost reached their target!

Recycle Your Textbooks

The Environment Group is organising to recycle text books. Year 12 students have already donated used text books, placing them in bins in the Locker area. These are available to Years 10 and 11 students in SN11. We hope to collect more books before the end of term and will let students know when they can come and collect them.
